Sydney Morgan, a sixteen-year-old girl with a black belt in karate, thinks her world has fallen apart. A close friend offends her, her mother is diagnosed with cancer, and her father—who abandoned them years ago—comes back into her life.

Just when Syd thinks this nightmare will never end, a time stone takes her to Captain Helaman and his stripling warriors of the Book of Mormon. But Helaman takes the time stone, calls her a spy, and has Tarik—his second-in-command—throw her in the stockade.

Tarik learns Syd is a time-traveling girl with fighting skills he’s never seen before and falls in love with her. Syd desperately wants to return home to be with her dying mother. Tarik has two choices: tell Helaman Syd’s true gender and risk losing her when she’s sent home, or not tell Helaman so Syd can train him and his warrior brothers.

The choice is impossible. If Syd stays she could die in the war. If she leaves, the Lamanites could win. The battles are heating up. Tarik must choose.

Originally published as The Forgotten Warrior. Title and cover updated in 2017.

    I think this book counts as a Tuesday Trivia time traveling book? If not, I am really interested in it! It looks really good!

    Interesting book. I found the change of font whenever the narrative changed point of view distracting and difficult to read. Other than that, the story was good.

    When I first received this book to review, I wasn’t sure if I’d like it or not. But I was surprised – I couldn’t put it down! It was fantastic! When I finished, I immediately gave it to my hubby to read as well. I can’t wait for the sequel.
